Last minute travel stress...

Just a few more days and our team will be on it's way to Haiti. We are all very excited. However, that is not to say that we are not working through our share of stress this week. One of our team members has her ticket purchased and has been waiting over 10 weeks for her passport and it has not come yet...please pray for this situation. Yes, they paid the expedite fee but because of passport backlogs have been told they have about a 50/50 chance of getting it!

This morning our group learned that American Airlines has a Summer Baggage Embargo going on right now. This has become a huge headache for me today because we have a certain large item that we planned to take in a large heavy duty box (for an additional fee). Part of the embargo is no boxes and no larger then standard packages! So we are stressing about finding a resolution to this. Please pray that God would give us wisdom in this and drop what we need right into our laps...we need the help! :) If we have to we could leave this item behind until the next trip- but I so had my heart set on giving it to the kids while we are there. Many of you know what this item is but please do not make a reference to it on this site as it sometimes read now in Haiti and I don't want to give away the surprise if we can get it there or have disappointed kids if we can not.

Just please keep our group covered in prayers! Thanks so much.
